2:00pm
frantically looking to rejigger the tax. i stress, not eliminating the tax. maybe focus on the rich. take 20% of their dough. hard to say. this much is not. it is going to happen. because the government needs the dough. if they still want to get european union dough. it gets weird and complicated. desperate to stay in the euro club. does this ring a bell? it should. no one is taxing the bank holdings, thanks to obamacare, they are going after the other assets. 3.7% on investment sales larger than 100,000 grand. the next time you try to sell your house, trust me. you will hit the roof. think about that. tax not on your income, earned or unearned but your assets. what you have, what you own. your tangible assets. home here, bank account there.
2:01pm
is there difference? no. no difference between american government taxing you for medical devices and what it deems as a medical insurance plan. taxing you not on what you make but what you have. the stuff you attain through life of work no, matter when you work or how much you made when you work. stuff you got now. to government, it sees that you have it now and it wants it now and wants you to pay up now. feel for the cri produce citizens who can't get access to their mup and have to wait until friday for a crack at getting their money. more time i suspect for the government to sort out how it's going to steal their money. all something that cyprus residents never saw coming. until it did. just like we in this country try to reassure ourselves, oh, can't happen here.
2:02pm
until it does. because it could very well happen in this country. we are going to be exploring it in detail tonight. 8:00 p.m. on fox business network. you don't get it -- >> demand it. your money depends on it. see you then. >> eric: hello, i'm eric bolling, kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." >> eric: if you missed dr. ben carson's speech at cpac earned him more cred among conservatives. watch. >> when did we reach a point you to have a certain philosophy because of the color of your skin? when did that happen. a reporter once asked me why i didn't talk a lot about race. i said because i'm a neurosurgeon.
2:03pm
they thought that was strange. i said you see when i take them to the operating room and cut the scalp and take off the bone slab, i'm operating on the thing that makes that person who they are. the cover doesn't make them who they are. when are we going to understand that? >> eric: dr. carson is a smart fan. conservative, loves capitalism, hates social. it and thinks president obama is ruining america. as you can see, he is black. it could care less about the color of his skin, but that is not how some see it on the left. take dean freeland at american university who tweeted i don't think i realized beep carson was conservative until last month. he is becoming the right wing go to black token. race baiting may be going on there. the left wants you to believe the conservatives are racists and maybe they should peek in the mirror. if you attack someone for being a certain color, the professor clearly did, who is really race-baiting.
2:04pm
you were cutting out opening intro. >> dana: quite a weekend. >> andrea: apparently. bob and i have become one. >> kimberly: everybody knows it. >> eric: what about the left and shot at dr. carson in they're the big tenet, right? >> kimberly: don't want to upset you in the first few minutes of the show, but they look like the ones race baiting and diminishing his accomplishment, value, core ideology. individual well educated. he fought to get to the position he is. in raised by a single mom. and his brother is a rocket scientist. this is an accomplished famil family. nobody handed anything to him. these are principles. to call him a token is something i find offensive to someone a accomplished. >> eric: it doesn't surprise you that we hear it from the left? >> greg: left wing professors are the most narrow minded people since the kkk. i'm not surprised they call
2:05pm
him uncle tom on twitter or token. he is carrier to them then kim jung un, with a finger on the button. this is not about pigment on the skin. it's about thickness. you have to have a thick skin because people will try to destroy you. in the sense the left is saying to blacks, we own you. it's no surprise they are or were the party of slavely. >> eric: it feels like the left is trying to be divisive. if they could put groups and make groups and say we the liberals are for your group, but the republicans aren't, that is what the plan is and what the goal is. blacks, women, gays, doesn't matter. they have to the people. >> dana: -- have to divide the people. >> dana: they say about dr. carson they're opportunists. like it's a bad thing to have your individualism exposed and step up and say after a wonderful career in the private sector, medicine in this case to think about
2:06pm
public service. it's noble. if he were to come out and say -- if he were to go to the dnc convention and say i've been a surgeon all my life and i want to run for office and be a democrat, i don't think you would have seen republican or conservative say the same about him that the left is saying about him now. >> eric: seems like dr. carson a true believer in liberty. >> bob: i would be careful about indicting the entire left on this from a tweet. i made a mistake one day of the show calling the senator from south carolina a token. it was a mistake on my part. a terrible thing to say. it doesn't affect the entire left. we may not agree with carson, but he is a smart guy obviously and he worked himself in the future of the republican party. my guidance here, if you want any at all is not indict the entire left wing of the
2:07pm
population saying they feel that way. >> greg: you made a point friday that republicans should get out more and talk to people. what happens is when they go out and talk to people, they are treated so badly. like romney went to philadelphia and got heckleed. when you look at the twitter feed, how badly was he? you have professors that are incompetent and that is the only thing you can do. this goes back to what dennis prager said, the right thinks the left is wrong, but the left thinks the right is evil. that excuses the dehumanizing behavior. the behavior that allows you to denigrate a surgeon. by the way, why are all surgeons conservatives? what is it about that? do they understand, you know, logic -- >> dana: logic and fact. >> greg: rapid paul, ophthalmologist, not a surgeon. ophthalmologists performs surgery. >> dana: they could. >> greg: case closed. >> eric: move to future of the g.o.p. >> kimberly: let's do it.
2:08pm
>> dana: so bright you have to wear shades. >> eric: me and a lot of conservatives scratching our head as they talk about rebanding the party, because it's perceived as "stufffy old men" and needs to change its ways. we had thoughts on the g.o.p. rush limbaugh. listen. >> the republicans are totally bamboozled and lacking in confidence. which is what happens to every political party after an election in which they think they got shellacked. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. in the 2019 election. >> eric: your thoughts? >> greg: it's hard to take a rebranding suggestion from someone named reince priebus. it sounds like a disorder you get from a shampoo. it's true! the party doesn't need a
2:09pm
makeover. they need a makeunder. the party has been victimized by the media who smeared them as uncool. no way to be a republican and be cool. it's associated also to being old. if you look at mccain, most people thought he was a cranky old guy, when he was a war hero who spent five-and-a-half years in a prison camp. most people didn't know that. they saw a cranky guy trying to beat a young black man for the office of the presidency. they need to simplify and say -- who do you want to be? you want to be an individual. you don't want to be part of the government. strive for achievement. how cool is that? that is what you get out to young people today. ref ject government influence. how simple is that? >> eric: is it smart for the g.o.p. and reince priebus is a say we have an autopsy report about what went wrong in the election? >> dana: i think so. there is a lot in the report, 219 recommendations. i don't know why they couldn't have made it, come up with one
2:10pm
more. maybe 220. but 219 may be more catchy. i agree on the point every party goes through this. what rush was saying, i remember talking to president bush 41 to ask him is he worried about the future of the republican party. he said look in 1992 after he lost, it took a while for republicans to get their footing but they did after two or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think
2:11pm
priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- underpinning of the con seventive republican movement. now you have ron paul and others like him and others who feel that way that it's not necessarily isolationism, but pulling back from around the world. versus the neokahns still powerful in the republican party and still want to protect american power overse overseas. that is a policy difference. >> eric: one of the things, the issues hit on over the weekend, in reince priebus' autopsy report, reform. this is big for the republican party. they have to figure out where
2:12pm
they are. is a full blown immigration reform/amnesty good or bad for the party? >> kimberly: that is why there is a division. but rubio's people have him spot on, on it. he is showing leadership, ideas, courage to move forward on the issue. if they do not, they will be left behind again. it will be another brutal bloodbath in 2016. >> eric: i don't think if they go for full immigration reform, they have to embrace the values of the hispanic community. >> kimberly: they have to bring them in, eric. >> eric: a lot more democrat votes in the system going forward. >> kimberly: but if they don't start to make serious inroads -- they at no time really ever act like they were trying to get out to the minority vote. dealing with the hardwork that needs to take place that the democrats have done over the year to show that constituency. we care about you, we are listening and we value your vote. >> dana: one of the outcomes of the autopsy report is a
2:13pm
$10 million outreach to hispanic community. that comes in a lot of ways, with the younger people. >> eric: [ inaudible ] >> dana: sure, why not? >> eric: it feels like ron portman saying he's for gay marriage after realizing his son is gay. after the fact. instead of saying here is what we're all about going forward. not here is how we screwed up before. >> dana: i don't understand the link between the immigration reform piece and rob portman unless your idea could evolve. i think it was a personal decision by rob portman and one that a lot of people over the last few years have come to. including like -- there is a lot of people. >> kimberly: they might have believed -- >> dana: charles murray, trashed his speech and gave one contemporaneous and gave thoughts and beliefs on why he should be for gay marriage as a conservative. there is a lot of good in
2:14pm
report. outreach a good thing. you can't just be talking to yourself. that's what a lot of people on the fringe of both parties do. talk most themselves to convince themselves they're right. >> bob: can i suggest that the republicans long-term reform and immigration is not only good policy and good politics for the republicans. the assumption that more democrats come in if you allow the hispanics in aligns that there is a lot of republicans. if you took away immigration, george bush proved this point in texas and ran for president. 40% something -- >> eric: unless you're president -- >> bob: no, no, no. eric, the angst in the hispanic community goes back down to the republicans' refusal to deal with immigration. when you have people, bush or others who see the light on this stuff, their policies are in match with awful lot of hispanics. >> eric: let me do this. before we go, run out of time. show you something and give you props here.
2:15pm
roll that. >> bob: the other thing i would say is you look at the winner of the straw poll already. i would be willing to wageer you any amount of money that rand paul would win that. >> eric: good call, my man. it's yours. >> bob: thank you. >> eric: he won by the way. >> bob: i think rubio came in second. it's not surprising in rand paul in that room, a lot of people who share his views, which are not just isolationism -- >> dana: cpac is not ra t republican group. they're independent group. not the full group. >> bob: good point. >> eric: panic overseas as the government of cyprus tries to loots private bank account of people to keep the financial system from collapsing. racing to draw the money before the c leptocrats grab it. greg gutfeld has why we should

2:21pm
gun control advocates have fun order to believe they protect us from the government tyranny. what if the government here tried to take over your bank account? war. it would be on. cyprus proved that joe biden's notion all you need is a shotgun is deeply flawed. sadly, though, the steal from the rich mentality is alive and well in america. remember occupy wall street? how different is the solution from the ret take demands your wealth is spread around? the defense against the toxic ideology isn't only reason but almost with a rifle. so it will never happen here. you have the good sense of the founding fathers to thank for it. what is the odds of this happening? how are they taking to the street and waving -- >> they will. this vote is happening tonight or tomorrow. cypriats will probably go and

2:23pm
so one of the things they have not done is dealt with their own energy independence. they could have done pipeline. they could have done their own exploration and instead they threat russians do it. the russians are the problem in the first place, so all these people put money in the banks there from russia, to the cypriate banks and the assets are too big and they don't pay for the services. no wonder it's going broke. >> kimberly: russians are smart. they're trying to take advantage of the situation. they will do something for you and you do something for us. like trump said, we'll help the other countries and troops there lose american lives. give us oil. what do we get back? business transaction. i don't admire it but i understand it. best thing about this weekend i got a cartoon thing with a leprechaun and had a pot, but no gold in it. what happened to your pot of gold? obama redistributed it. >> dana: i thought you'd say william devaney came to get
2:24pm
it. >> greg: there is always a gun control argument in the american media that says gun advocates always talk about government tyranny. that is some kind of paranoid leftovers. we're in a civilized society now. this could never happen. but don't we -- can't we look over at cri produce an cyprus ay are stealing from the people? >> bob: the russians are the largest controller of natural gas in europe. they are shown to use it for the political purposes, they shut off gas to georgians when they need to do it. give them a foothold of the natural gas, you ask for that much more trouble. remember that cyprus went through in the '70s, a zi civil war. there were a lot of guns there. they have the eighth largest per capita owner of guns. yet, a lot of guns were taken away. i suspect that there will not
2:25pm
be armed warfare over this. it will get bailed out. could it happen here? i'm not sure, as eric pointed out we can always print money. i have a real question whether citizens can take up guns and take over the country. >> eric: can i point something out? i asked the depositors and cypriates would they rather give the money to the government or want the russians to buy the infrastructure and then they're made hole. >> kimberly: like the russians better that their government. >> dana: which is what the russians want. >> eric: let them have it. democrat's what they want. they're the winner. all of a sudden they take 6.75 off the top. >> kimberly: mattress time people. >> greg: i have been waiting for you to say that all day. >> bob: go to the mattresss? >> kimberly: perfect. freddie sorry about that. i couldn't resist it.
